If you've always wanted to discover the startling world of ethical hacking, then keep reading…
Ever feel like you don’t even own the hardware and software you paid dearly for?
Ever get the impression that you have to ask for permission before installing or changing a program on your device?
Ever feel like Facebook and Instagram are listening to your conversations to show you relevant ads?
You’re not alone.
Half-baked products and services that chip away at your sense of ownership, independence and privacy are a part of a global wave of corporate indifference that micromanages and spies on honest, uniformed customers. None of it is intentional or meant to cause harm, which makes it all the more damning.
There’s a silver lining in all of this, and that is ethical hacking. This book will shine a light on how engineers think and show you how to discern their original intentions, helping you adopt their attitude and perfect their products despite managerial crud doing their worst to stop you.
In a world where everything is slowly becoming more managed and overbearing, this book is an attempt to take back some of that original awesomeness envisioned by engineers and at least make your world a slightly better place.
